Anime All Star is a series of anime shorts and music videos (used in only selected episodes) featuring 30 anime franchises (20 more from the Animetoons series, and 2 more from the "Aria the Scarlet Ammo Mini Short" series). The shorts are more reminiscent to the classic cartoons from the 30's to the 70's.
Each episode features the mascots as hosts presenting 3 anime shorts (or 2 anime shorts with a music video or an "Aria the Scarlet Ammo Mini Short" shown shown in between in certain episodes). All the shorts only use title cards (the credits for the shorts are featured on the endings).
The first mascots in season 1 of the series are Takeru and Hikari (from Digimon Adventure). But would both be replaced by Kaorin, Sakaki, Chiyo Chan, and Osaka (from Azumanga Daioh) for the later seasons. Except seasons 47-50 would only feature Kaorin as the mascot (removing Sakaki, Chiyo Chan, and Osaka). Chiyo Chan, Miruchi and Yuka only host the 5 special of the series.

Theatrical ReleasesEditMost of the shorts from this series would also have theatrical releases (these would be the only versions to have their own opening and closing titles) playing with both japanese live-action and anime films all distributed by Kadokawa Shoten in Japan.
In America, the shorts are mostly played in selected theaters as their own theatrical series with only anime films domestically for screening only (both english subbed and dubbed) all distributed by Sony Pictures' new distributing studio Columbia Tristar Pictures. The shorts from seasons 47-50 of the series would be co-distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures due to the use of WB Animation characters.
The shorts would also be released at most anime conventions. But the TV versions from the Anime All Star series would be used instead, and only the shorts from seasons 1-47 would be shown.
The series would be aired in its original uncut form on Anime Network. But on Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Cinemagic in the UK, they would only air the American theatrical versions of the shorts. The original opening would be replace by a similar opening to Looney Tunes on Nickelodeon, the mascot hosting segments and the original closing credits are removed, and some of the episodes are edited for content. Due to the japanese references and some adult content, Disney Channel and Disney XD's broadcast is rated TV-PG. The Disney Cinemagic airings of the series is only aired in its original NTSC format instead of being compressed into the PAL format.
